When Michael Duncan is sent to investigate the disappearance of several dragon subjects, he finds himself in a bind. Locked in a dungeon, his only hope lies wrapped in a bundle of cloth tossed at his feet. One kiss and his life is changed forever. Hunted by his own people for crimes he didn't commit, Michael has to learn a whole new life at the hands of a beautiful woman. Can she help him clear his name, or will just being in her presence get him sentenced to death?
Carissa Markel doesn't know who this man chained to the wall is, but he's her only chance for escape. She has power, but, born without a voice, she lacks the means to wield it. One choice, made in desperation, sends them running for his life. Does she have the strength to help him clear his name? And what will her brother, the King of Dragons, do if he finds out what she's done? That's immaterial, the real question is… can she keep her hands off him long enough to find out?

This was a super short read, but, amazingly, was still a complete story. I was left with a few questions, but considering this is part of a larger series, those questions may be answered in the next books. I certainly intend to read them to find out.

I found Wetzel's take on dragonshifters to be unique and refreshing. Not to mention her descriptions of them in their "lesser" forms painted a mental picture that is just too darn cute! There were a few times I wish she had gone a little further with the story and found myself frustrated with the fade-to-black after the build up to the characters finally getting into each others' pants. One other thing I didn't like was how Michael started to remind me of the obnoxious seagulls in Finding Nemo.

Beyond that, Wetzel is an amazing author. She has such a way with words! I truly look forward to reading more of her work!
